First of all, welcome to HealingWell depression forum. I think that you will find that there is a wonderful group of kind and caring members here. We all welcome you...
Honestly, I think that you should wait to talk to your doctor before increasing your meds, or maybe call and get advice there. They will probably tell you to go ahead. But this is advice that we can't give you here. You only have a week to go so that isn't that long. Though I know it probably feels that way.
It does sound llike the lexapro is working for you and I am almost sure that the doc will increase your dosage. I am happy that it is working for you.
Please keep posting, we always love having new members. I am sorry that I cannot give you the advice that you are looking for. But try to hold on and relax, I am sure that your doctor will be willing to help you.
